100 Per Cent Canadian Beef Sourcing

July 18, 2019

 

TORONTO, ON  – From time to time, we receive questions via email and social media about McDonald’s Canada’s beef purchasing practices.  This stems from a viral email which contains information that is completely false and is a hoax.

McDonald’s Canada sources 100% Canadian beef from farms and ranches across the country for our hamburger patties.  All our hamburger patties are made with 100% Canadian beef and have been since 2003.  We use no additives or fillers, either - just a pinch of salt and pepper after the patty is cooked.

McDonald's Canada remains one of the largest purchasers of Canadian beef, and continues to be a proud supporter of the Canadian beef industry.
